    Certainly charming, don't really get what all the fuss was about, though.

    The Artist is a love letter to the silent film era that goes well beyond being a gimmick, and offers up a solid comedy-drama. Dujardin plays a silent film actor struggling to continue with his career upon the advent of the talkies. Bejo, as an actress who is in love with him, tries to save his career and save him from his own depression. The Artist turns the limitations of silent film into an idiom, where overacting and having the…

    When was the last time anyone made a silent film? Or at least one that had a decent budget. It's got a pretty standard narrative but what makes it interesting is it's presentation. Early in the movie we see the hero's film premier and after the movie ends and orchestra is done playing the audience stands up and gives a silent standing ovation. No sound at all. It's jarring and awesome.

    The Artist

    The Artist one of finest films I've watched in two years. It is directed with zeal and artistic-approach by Michel Hazanavicius. Inspiring work of cinematography from Guillaume Schiffman, who has revitalized the era of Silent-film, we all love so much to groove. Plot of film may seem ordinary (usually taken up by Hollywood and beyond, in the past) but since this is black-and-white film with subject of 'silent-film' in limelight, it simply outshines the rest. It's moving, romantic,…

    Great film and film making craftsmansship. Was it worth the Oscar ? I don't think so, given that 80% of it is a homage to old cinema instead of something new, but Hollywood is in love with itself, that is no big secret so there you go. All in all, well worth your while.

    The cinematography is gorgeous, the acting is great - especially from Dujardin, which gives an oscar-deserving performance - the music feels a bit off though, but is still decent. The story is very good as well, with decent characters. The directing is good as well. It's pretty much good in every department.

    But because of the no talking it still feels a bit hard to connect optimally. Especially before the ending.

    Still a good movie.

    Marvelous story about transformation from SILENT to TALKIES.

    Moral of the story: Every new Generation seeks and gets transformation, but for "SOME PEOPLE" its not an easy way to survive during this transformation.

    Its their fear which will keep them away from adopting to a new situation and can make them forgettable. A LEAP OF FAITH will do an enough magic.

    "I'm the one people come to see. They never needed to hear me."

    Perhaps it's fitting that I end my first Best Picture Rundown with a winner paying homage to the silent film era. Michel Hazanavicius' ambitious idea really does do the silent movies of old justice, leaving in just enough of the quirky, almost dark humour every silent film had because they used expressiveness and body language more than in the talkies. This allowed the plot to be furthered…
